Coach’s Information Below:
The programs for the Cadet provincial championship have been posted on the website. If you did not get a bout this tournament don’t forget there’s another tournament right around the corner – the Ray McGibbons Gloves is scheduled for April 8-10, 2005 in St. Catharines.
A reminder to coaches â€“ only coaches registered for 2005 are eligible to work the corners at sanctioned events. As per the last 2 tournaments, registered coaches will be issued coloured wrist bands at the weigh-ins, which must be worn in order to work the corners.
Coaching Clinic â€“ Training Athletes for Elite Level Competition
There will be a coaching clinic at the Cadet Provincials, delivered by renowned sports psychologist Dr. Robert Schinke. The clinic will take place on Friday afternoon from 3:00pm to 5:00pm (after the weigh-ins and draw) and on Saturday morning from 9:00am to 11:00am â€“ at the Holiday Inn in the weigh-in room. We will be offering a light lunch and breakfast in conjunction with the clinic. Dr. Schinke will be covering topics such as Resilience and Persistence training, how to communicate effectively with athletes and preparing them for elite level competition.
